When you have upwards of 52 million followers across social media, posting what you feel is an unflattering photo of yourself gets noticed. Will Smith is well aware of this fact and has decided to use his massive platform to open up about putting on the pounds during the pandemic, and his plan to get back in shape in partnership with YouTube.

After receiving countless photos in support of his weight loss goal, Smith decided to share them and offer up a challenge: "Hahahahaha - Let’s go get it! After pics due in 12 weeks," he captioned an Instagram post while asking fans to use the #bigwilliechallenge hashtag.
This, of course, all follows a series of posts showing off his quarantine body, with Smith captioning one, “This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing thru the pantry. I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better. No more midnight muffins…this is it! Imma get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!!!!! Teaming up with @YouTube to get my health & wellness back on track. Hope it works.”
Here's hoping Will, and all of the folks looking to shed a few of the pounds put on while sitting at home over the past year, have fun in their quests to get more healthy. As we await the launch of the YouTube page (on Will's or a separate channel) we'll be waiting to check on you in 12 short weeks, fellas!
